Dual WAN Setup - how to get both public IPs reachable

Hi, I have a quite simple setup using a RB4011 with two WAN Links (ISP1 and ISP2). The route table has two entries for 0.0.0.0/0, one with an AD of 1 (ISP1), the other with an AD of 2 (ISP2). I just have that floating route for failover and don't need anything more advanced (load balancing etc.). Bu...

Netwatch and SNMP monitoring

Hello,

is it possible to combine the Netwatch tool with SNMP monitoring?

What I want to do is to ping an IP address and have the result (host is reachable or not reachable) be written into an SNMP oid, so I can monitor it.

Is there a way to do that or maybe an even better solution?

Thanks!

Hi,

the Internet Detect Feature has stopped working some days ago, the Interface fell back to WAN. It used to work fine but now it isn't. Using the Packet Sniffer Tool I can see tx traffic to cloud.mikrotik.com (159.148.147.229) but no replies. Is it just me? How would I troubleshoot that?
